The events listed have been reported in the public domain or to cruisejunkie by passengers or crew members onboard.  The list is by no means comprehensive.  For that reason it is necessary to be cautious in drawing conclusions from the potentially limited data.  Keep in mind that some companies may be more transparent than others about things that go wrong; conversely, some companies may be better at concealing events and thereby project an appearance that is inaccurate.  With that said, the following list is still interesting, as are the patterns when viewed separately by ship.

The launch ceremony for the ship was cancelled after a worker died in an accident on board the vessel last night. A 43 year old supervisor at the Fincantieri shipyard was killed when he tried to squeeze through a heavy watertight door that closed upon him. Around 2,000 workers at the Monfalcone shipyard went on an eight-hour strike in protest of the fatality and to call for improved workplace security.
